Myanmar: Blast injures 4 in capital

Government security officials say a bomb exploded in a suburb of the capital Yangon, wounding four people..

The officials say a man suspected of carrying the bomb was among those wounded Sunday evening near the Aung Zeya bridge in northern Yangon. A three-year-old girl was also hurt/

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media.

Though terrorism is rare in this junta-ruled nation, there have been several bombings since last year, including three in Yangon that killed nine people and wounded 170.

Government officials declined to comment on suspects, but the junta has blamed previous attacks on armed exile groups or ethnic rebels.
